Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is an excellent pictorial book about the nations of the Southeast. It is part of the "Indians of North America" series—a Bobbie Kalman Book. It is a succinct history with lots of pictures to make it appealing and there is just enough text to give the basic facts, plus some. Therefore, the interest rate for the assignment-browser or the interest-in-Indians reader goes way up. For everyone else it is a likely prospect for browsing or for quick reading. Sometimes the factual books on a particular subject can be overwhelming, and/or the child has not yet learned research skills, so that is why this one is so good. The progression of the subject matter chapters is good and ends with the nations today. There is a glossary and an index. Some readers will be interested in having a copy of their own. Check the back cover for all of the other titles in the "Native Nations of North America" series. 2006, Crabtree Publishing Company, and Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 3-5-The information in these books is presented in a concise manner with respect for Native American culture and history. Each title is illustrated with artist renderings and/or color photographs. Southeast introduces the tribes' culture, language, history, and customs but does not include the impact of European settlement. Foods gives the history and significance of various foods both historically and today. It includes corn, squash, and herbs and explains the process for making pemmican and harvesting rice. Several traditional recipes are interspersed within each chapter. Wisdom discusses the contributions that Native Americans have made for which they may not have received credit. They include various foods eaten by many Americans today, the use of scented fishing lures, lacrosse, the parka, and jojoba as an ingredient in shampoo. The books are clearly written and would be useful for reports or browsing.-G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
